A Fairfax, Virginia native, Hammond originally signed with Rhode Island basketball but asked out of his letter of intent after a handful of staff changes with the Rams.

Hammond ranks as a three-star recruit and the No. 195 player in the 2024 recruiting cycle according to the 247sports composite rankings. A 5-foot-11, 165-pound guard, Hammond ranks as the No. 23 point guard and No. 10 player in the state of Virginia in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

An undersized but shifty point guard, Hammond helped lead Team Takeover to a EYBL Peach Jam Championship last summer. Since reopening his recruitment, Hammond has also taken a visit to Virginia Tech as he looks to find his new home.
